  • 2. Dear Colleague, Would you like to learn the reality of how much natural gas vehicles will cost to introduce and operate for your fleet? If so, join us at Natural Gas Fleet Vehicles 2013: Adoption & Operation ROI Congress, where you will hear detailed strategic discussions from 20+ VPs, Fleet Directors and Managers, as they reveal real world data across 1, 3 and 5+ years to help you understand long-term feasibility and critically, the total cost of ownership for investing in natural gas vehicle fleets, facilities and infrastructure. Clearly there has been much discussion in the industry regarding potential use of natural gas fleet vehicles with such favorable pricing following the shale gas boom. Abundance alone however, is not enough to ensure widespread adoption, with some skepticism remaining over the actual cost of ownership and whether over the long-term this negates the current high upfront costs. Moving from projections to understanding real experiences of early adopters and those who have recently invested, we are delighted to return with the second edition of the Natural Gas Fleet Vehicles 2013: Adoption And Operation ROI Congress. Known for delivering the most comprehensive breakdown of the costs of fleet integration, the 2013 congress will not only provide an A-Z for those considering adoption, but will also go a step further to look at in-depth operational costs being experienced, providing useful benchmarking data for those who have already begun investing. Please take a look through the enclosed agenda and visit www.natural-gas-fleet-vehicles-2013.com for the fastest way to register. We look forward to welcoming you to Austin in September.
